Happy Spring! Actully there is no Spring in New York, but we are still in winter. we may still have snow in April. then, all the sudden, the earth heats up, the trees turn into green, flowers bloom and we jump into Summer right after Winter.
All the flowers in the background are actually summer & autumn flowers. lol

when this doll was first sneak-peeked on BFC last year, I thought she was cute & I wanted her, since the wait was long, I went on eBay and bought one vintage Skipper to warm up my love for her
After that, I received a set of 2 vintage skippers as gifts. so I decided I had enough skippers, I was not going to buy the 50th Anniversary.
then, she was sold out on Barbiecollector.com faster than anyone could believe. some insane eBay sellers listed her for $240.
The doll stirred up a storm on BFC. There were a lot of hard feelings & harsh words, people were not happy.
but, she kept showing up on my computer screen even I was not looking for her, first, she was on Amazon $39.95, then she was on Yoyo.com ($30 with coupon), then she was on Walmart.com $39.99, I did not change my mind but informed my dollie friends about her avialibilities. some of them were able to snatch her up.
finally, she showed up on Kmart… I thought she was meant to be mine. so I bought her. paid $42.50 including sales tax. I also saw her on ToysRus online.
bad news or good news, she is going to have a twin sister and deal with Sibling rivalry. Mattel will release a Brunette in August. An eMail perhaps has arrived in your inBox if you are a BC’s Newsletter subscriber.
just my opinion, they could have made the Brunette’s outfits in other colors. such as Gold, Pink, Green… whatever…

its an unfinished project, I m taking a few photos to see if she is “photogenic”, my camera is unable to catch the actual colors, I turned the “Flash off”, the photos are blurry.
she is not really “Fiorella”, she is a repainted “Luncheon ensemble”.
After seeing the Japan Convention Exclusive “Redhead Fiorella”, a couple of my facebook friends asked if I could make a redhead. I am too lazy to do rerooting, so I chose an easy path: repainting one instead.
I sold my Fiorella’s dress on the day she arrived. lol I couldnt remember how the back of the dress look like, luckily, I found the 360° view on BarbieCollector’s website… but its a pain to make this dress. the material I chose is too thick, and the organza frays
she is still in process…
